This was our third visit, with friends, to Gill and Bill's 5-star, homely B&B. Quality position, superb breakfasts - but so much more than that! Those special little touches that make you feel you are really being pampered and Gill and Bill's hospitality makes you feel so welcome - nothing is too much trouble. Cannot fault it, everything to a... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in this really lovely B&B with another couple of friends. The house is a wonderful English countryside home, elegantly furnished and decorated. All the 3 bedrooms are gorgeous and well equipped ( electric iron, umbrella, cleaning products for shoes, bathrobe, etc) with a great view over the bay. We stayed in the n.... More

Waters Edge exceeded our expectations, so much that it was hard to leave & explore the surrounding area. The attention to detail throughout the property is first class. Lots of interesting areas to enjoy. The bedrooms & bathrooms are furnished & decorated to a very high standard with a feel of comfort & luxury, lots of extra touches to make... More

The B&B lived up to and excelled expectations. The accommodation is excellent with views of the Moray Firth, a place really to wish that your stay would go on forever. I have forgot to mention the breakfasts, food is wonderfuland they set you up well for the day. Gill and Bill are great hosts and make you feel very welcome.

I think that we have booked with Bill & Gill five times now and always have a delightful stay. The standard of the establishment is comparable to a large luxury hotel in my humble opinion and I can only echo the positive comments that have been posted previously. Thank you both for all your hard work.

We first stayed with Bill and Gill almost 5 years ago, and decided to stay there again to break up the drive from the Borders to Orkney. To be honest, we had a tiny bit of apprehension; could we really expect the same standards of excellence as before? We needn't have worried. We stayed in the same room (room 3),... More

Bill is a fantastic host - went out of his way to help in everyway and offer advice. We had to leave early to get a flight and he got up early in order to prepare some breakfast for us - it was above and beyond. The room was perfect - beautifully decorated and such attention to detail. The views... More

We were delighted to spend 2 nights at this B&B, which is more like a mini hotel. Beautiful situation. Lovely views across the water. Sadly we saw no otters. Lovely bedroom with almost everything you could possibly need thought of and ready for you. Huge beautifully equipped bathroom.

As a B&B owner myself, I know how hard it is to get everything just perfect for your guests but I would say Gill & Bill have done that. We were touring the west then north and east of Scotland and spent our last night there. We had a superior room with a roll top bath overlooking the gorgeous view.... More
